If anyone is interested please call the Senior Center at 482-6450. Perhaps you folks living in the outlying areas would be interested as well. The course addresses driving frustrations, unrecog- nized loss in vision, hearing and the effect it can have on your driving ability, effects of alcohol and medications, right-of-way rules, colors and shapes of road signs, and many other important tips on driving requirements. It is eight hours of classroom instruction and the charge is $8. This course can help reduce your chance of being involved in a traffic accident, help maintain your mobil- ity and independence, and save on your automobile insurance. We send our sincere sympathy and prayers to the family of Crystal (Becky) Carpenter who passed away on Monday, May 19. Becky has lived in Goldfield for many years and enjoyed a wide circle of friends. This grand lady will be missed, but her wonderful ways and beautiful smile will never be forgotten. We celebrate the Silver Anniversary of the Nutrition Programs for the Elderly to honor the signing of the Older Americans Act, 25 years ago, by President Nixon. The Older Americans Act Elderly Nutrition Program pro- vides home-delivered and congregate meals to millions of senior citizens, and is expected to grow much larger as our population ages. Quite often these meals are the only source of nutrition the senior will have during the day whether it be through a home-delivered meal or at a senior center or congregate dining site, promoting healthy living and linking older people to other essential community services. Everyone must work together to support these pro- grams, especially in the rural areas of Nevada. A thought to remember: "Some day soon I will become a senior citizen." We had a nice visit with Richard Gregory, the van driver at the Beatty Senior Center. It pleases us to have seniors from other centers stop by for lunch. Our thanks to Helen Reed for the fresh rhubarb which was immediately used for a delicious rhu- barb crisp for all to enjoy. And to Charlotte Kelley for those fresh eggs that always add that extra touch of Fr0 {}the[ freshness to our meals. Calei? Join us for lunch this coming week.
